An automated external defibrillator, or AED, is an electronic device that is able to deliver a shock of electricity to the heart of a person suffering from cardiac arrest when their normal heartbeat has stopped. They are designed for use by trained professionals and bystanders in order to save lives during life-threatening emergencies.
How does the AED know what type of shock to deliver
The automated external defibrillator (AED) is a life-saving device that can deliver an effective shock to a person in cardiac arrest. The AED uses sensors to detect the heart rhythm and delivers a shock if it determines that the person is in cardiac arrest. The AED’s success depends on correctly recognizing the type of shock required. In general, the AED will deliver either a cardioversion (a jolt of electricity to the heart) or an electric cardioversion (an electric current delivered directly to the heart).
What is the difference between an automated and manual defibrillation
An automated external defibrillator, or AED, is a device that can be used to restart a heart that has stopped beating. AEDs are different from manual defibrillators in that they are automatically activated when they detect a cardiac arrest. This means that there is no need for someone to manually press the button to start the device.
How are AEDs used in various public places
An automated external defibrillator, or AED, is a lifesaving device that can be used in public places to treat cardiac arrest. When someone has a cardiac arrest, their heart stops beating and they can become brain dead within minutes. If not treated quickly, a person with cardiac arrest can die. AEDs are typically deployed in public places like shopping malls and stadiums to help people who have had a heart attack or have suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.
An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a lifesaving device that can be used to resuscitate someone who has an arrhythmia and may be having a cardiac arrest. AEDs can be found in most public places, such as shopping centers, airports, and churches. AEDs are also available in some hospitals.
